2023 “Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award” Launched, Supporting Innovative Enterprises That Accelerate the Global Carbon Neutralization Process

On March 1, 2023, Bluetech Clean Air Alliance (BCAA) and the Greentech Financing Platform (GFP) jointly launched the 2023 "Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award”. To find global technology pioneers in the field of carbon neutrality to select and accelerate outstanding enterprises and projects that can improve the process of carbon neutrality in China and the world. From now until April 30, 2023, enterprises can participate in the application. After preliminary screening, internal review, roadshow, expert review and other steps, the award results and ceremony will be held at the annual meeting of the Greentech Financing Platform (GFP).

The selection of the "Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award” will be conducted under the guidance of the selection advisory committee composed of well-known experts in green finance and green technology-related fields. The selection advisory committee is chaired by Dr. Jun MA, President of Institute of Finance and Sustainability (IFS), and the committee members include senior representatives from leading investment institutions, research institutions, international organizations, industry associations and large multinational companies. Dr. Jun MA believes that to achieve China's carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals, we should take more market-oriented means to promote low-carbon transition, focus on supporting the connection between financial resources and green technologies, and strengthen the international competitiveness in a series of green and low-carbon fields, especially in the technical field. This is also the original intention of this award.

Based on the "Bluetech Award" launched in 2015, the "Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award " is focusing on the evaluation of technology enterprises and entrepreneurial teams in new energy, green transportation, energy storage, green building, energy conservation, intelligent manufacturing and other key tracks of low carbon technologies. The Bluetech Award has been carried out for six years, and a systematic evaluation mechanism and a project recruitment and acceleration networks across over 20 countries have been established. In 2022, the "Bluetech Award" was expanded to "Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award" and was launched in January of the same year. On December 17, 2022, the selection results of the first "Bluetech Carbon Neutrality Pioneers Award" were officially released at the 2nd Greentech Financing Annual Conference.

According to Hongxing XIE, Director of Bluetech Clean Air Alliance (BCAA), the award faces the technology enterprises and entrepreneurial teams in the field of carbon neutrality, and a technical expert group will be formed under the guidance of the Selection Advisory Committee. The review will adopt a unified evaluation process and standards, and comprehensive evaluation in terms of technology, IP, market, team and business model will be conducted to select the green and low-carbon enterprises with the most development potential.

The award is also supported by several financial and investment institutions, industry organizations, incubators, accelerators and international partners. "Leveraging financial investment resources to support technological innovations and the rapid growth of technology enterprises in key areas of carbon neutrality, is of great significance to achieving the goal of carbon neutrality. Scientific evaluation and screening will better facilitate and guide the investment directions to companies with advanced technologies and good carbon emission reduction benefits ", said Lijian ZHAO, president of Carbon Trust China and head of Secretariat of Greentech Financing Platform.
